Honourable Shina Abiola Peller, a member of the House of Representatives representing Iseyin/Itesiwaju/Kajola/Iwajowa Federal Constituency, Honourable Shina Abiola Peller, has quitted his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Peller made this revelation via a letter forwarded to the Chairman of his ward.
Recall that the indigene of Iseyin in Oke Ogun geo-political zone in Oyo State was elected on the platform of APC in 2019.
He has, in the recent primary election, contested for Oyo North Senatorial District seat on the platform of the ruling APC.
The legislator has announced his exit from the APC.
The lawmaker in the letter insisted that he has made due consultation with his people before making the decision.
The lawmaker said some people in the party have decided to force their preferred candidate on the people.
He revealed that he has taken the decision because his people have told him to do so.
He said, “I write to formally inform you of the renouncement of my membership from the All Progressives Congress (APC).
“I took this decision after due consultation with my people from the Oke Ogun region and beyond who feel humiliated by the undemocratic acts and decisions of some gladiators within Oyo State APC.
“President Muhammadu Buhari preached bottom-to-top approach driven APC, but the undemocratic conduct of some party chieftains particularly in Oyo State has shown that the people from the grassroots and the youth will continue to be at the mercy of the few at the top, who impose their preferred candidate against the wish of the people, as recently witnessed in Oyo North Senatorial District where I belong.
“My people have therefore decided that we withdraw our membership of the APC, and I totally align with them as I delved into politics not for selfish reason but the overall interest of Nigerian youths and the people of Oke Ogun. So. I hereby renounce my membership of the APC”.
